About SafeTREC

Our Mission, Our Vision

SafeTREC’s mission is the reduction of transportation-related injuries and fatalities through research, education, outreach, and community service. Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death for people aged 1 to 34 in the U.S.—and a major cause of minor and debilitating injuries for all age groups.

A Clarification Regarding Measure RR 

Material distributed by the Yes on RR campaign show an endorsement of the measure by an official with SafeTREC, a unit of the University of California’s Institute of Transportation Studies. We wish to clarify that, while University of California employees are free to endorse ballot measures in their personal capacity and may state their University positions for identification purposes, ITS and SafeTREC  are not authorized to endorse candidates or ballot measures.
